Drivers won’t be able to leave their cars along West Wycombe High Street for eight weeks while the National Trust carries out work on properties along the road.

In a letter addressed to residents seen by the Free Press, a spokesperson for the heritage conservation charity said a complete parking restriction would be in place between Chapel House and 38 High Street from Sunday, July 7, to Monday, September 2.

They said traffic management workers would place barriers along the stretch on July 7 to deter vehicles ahead of “high-level works” to seven properties on the High Street set to begin the following day.

West Wycombe Parish Council has reportedly offered the burial ground car park behind St Paul’s Church as alternative parking during the eight weeks, though residents will need to move their vehicles during funeral bookings.

The National Trust previously described the work as an “essential decoration project”, with a spokesperson telling locals that subcontractors would “endeavour to cause minimal disruption”.

Buckinghamshire Council has also granted a permit for two-way traffic lights to be installed on the High Street during the two-month period to “separate a scaffolding tower from vehicular traffic and pedestrians”.
